As an extra, there is some form of free entertainment at all of them too. I have only listed 7 of Las Vegas’ many shopping centers, one for each day of the week, and all of them are on Las vegas Boulevard (The Strip.) Listed in order of location, the first is on the south end of The Strip, and the last is Downtown. There are several other major malls in Las Vegas, and every casino in town seems to have some kind of mini-mall at least. But most of them only feature what you’d expect in a mall in any city. The malls and shopping centers listed here offer a little something different to make the shopping experience a bit more special.
Burger Bar (Mandalay Place, 3920 Las vegas Blvd South – the shopping area between Mandalay Bay and Luxor). Here you can enjoy their specialty burgers as well as create your own amongst a large variety of ingredients and toppings, from fancy to simple. Many love their Kobe Beef burger (simple but very juicy). Not the cheapest.
If you want to get out of Las Vegas, you can take a tour to the Grand Canyon or Lake Mead. Red Rock Canyon is just a short 17 mile drive from the Strip out Route 159 and only costs per carload. You can take the scenic drive, hike the canyons and see interesting exhibits at the visitors Center. I thought this was a highlight of my trip. There is a desert tortoise who lives behind the Visitors Center and it was fun to watch him in his habitat.
fashion show mall – One of the largest enclosed shopping malls in the world can be found on the Las Vegas strip. The malls contain over 250 stores and have an elevated stage where fashion shows take place.
The tour is conducted in a large comfortable bus, with a knowledgeable guide. There are opportunites to get out as a group and (quickly) explore some haunted areas including the wedding chapel at the Flamingo casino, and a very haunted picnic area in nearby Henderson. Although paranormal diehards may roll their eyes at all the talk about capturing orbs on camera, the tour is geared for those unversed in the ghostly and generally a fabulous opportunity to get the scoop up close on Sin City’s most haunted sites.
What Else is There To Do – for thrills and chills try the Adventuredome Theme Park at 2880 Las Vegas Blvd. Over 25 rides and games will keep the kids busy for hours. There are several museums in Las Vegas. I loved the Auto Collection at the Imperial Palace. It’s the largest classic car collection and changes frequently as the cars are for sale. I’ve never seen so many beautiful Rolls Royces.
CHINATOWN – Is situated in the Las vegas Valley consisting of large strip malls there are owned and operated by ethnic Chinese as well as other Asian ethnicities. The architect of several of the buildings, provide viewers with a great view of the Asian culture.
When you check into the hotel that you decided upon make sure not to be shy and ask them if there are any free upgrades. Many times during the off season the hotels will allow you to upgrade your room with extra amenities or a better view for the same price of your original room.
